Piano Pronto®: Interlude
Interlude features thirty familiar solos from Keyboard Kickoff, Prelude, and Pronto Pizazz Volume 1, transposed to the keys of G and F major, and adjusted to include more independent work between the hands. The pieces, which include teacher duets, can be used to challenge early beginners, as a lateral move for students who need reading reinforcement, or for transfer students who need a refresher of basic concepts before starting Movement 1.
Backyard Bash is a collection of solos written for beginning pianists who enjoy playing music with lyrics. With the exception of three pieces, Crazy Cat, Old Dog, and Tree Swallow, these songs describe actual events that have happened in my suburban backyard in Southwest Virginia. Crazy Cat combines the personalities of two of our family cats, Calhoun and Casper, into one. Old Dog is about our Golden Retriever, Clyde, who lived with us when we started our family and was the kindest and most gentle dog I’ve ever known. Tree Swallow is about a male tree swallow who behaved exactly as described in the lyrics, but in my father’s backyard rather than in mine. I have found that my students love playing these songs because they sound more difficult than they are, and they are fun to sing along with! I hope you enjoy these musical nature studies and learn to play them all! - Sarah O’Brien
